in a discussion about expansion of nuclear power in iran, russian technology in iran. they make announcements about it regularly. i think it is unlikely to proceed very far very fast until the one that has been on the verge of opening for many years actually does begin to function. the negotiation of the five plus is complex enough as it is. but i do not believe that an expansion of nuclear power, or an intention to expand that will happen much later, really adds to the nature of the negotiation we are in right now. >> may i just say that iran is a big part of the whole puzzle because of assad and hezbollah. there it is as a separate agenda contrary to our interests. that six y thankful plants six new power were not completed before he felt, or the ayatollah would have those in his control. let me just repeat that it is still there plan to use nuclear power plant as a cover for a nuclear weapons program. we have to deal with it now rather than later. we have to make it part of a program that says you do not have an inherent right to these nuclear power plants and we're going to block it. if w
